New LIAT CEO looks forward to improved service

The new Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of LIAT, Barbadian Julie Reifer-Jones, has said that she is looking forward to delivering an improved level of service from the airline to the region.

Her appointment was confirmed by the Board of Directors of the carrier.

Reifer-Jones is the first woman to be appointed LIAT CEO.

In announcing her appointment, Chairman of the Board,  Jean Holder noted that she has served at LIAT in the number two position for some nine years and in that capacity has acted as CEO for extended periods on several occasions.

According to Barbados Today, Holder observed that in addition to her familiarity with the people and culture of the region and her intimate knowledge of the company, the new CEO’s financial and academic qualifications should complement the practical experience of the airline industry she has acquired on the job.

Holder said Reifer-Jones was taking up one of the most challenging assignments in the region and he wished her well.


She is a graduate of the University of the West Indies, a Fellow of the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA) and a member of the Institute of Chartered Accountants of Barbados.

    And this is the reason why liat will ALWAYS be a FAULURE. A bunch of folks who hardly has any insight to aviation. Just shut down the airline already or privatise it

      My thoughts exactly.. If you are lucky to get a flight to your destination you can’t even count on getting back to your point of origin.. So sad…
